Why don't you change this tradition and do something you prefer doing?

Subject: [teacherartexchange] I need suggestions for fabric dye and

I've been told that in order to prepare for field day at my school, it
tradition for the art classes to tie-dye T-shirts for the kids to wear.
All the dye is supposed to be ordered by me - the only problem is I know

very little about it. Does anyone have recommendations of child-safe
dyes? I'd like them to be of decent quality, but I think the deciding
factor is going to be cost, since I have to have enough for 600 shirts.
Where can I buy in bulk?

Also, does anyone have any tie-dye tips? I know I'm not allowed to use
rubber bands with them, so I'm kind of at a loss for how to do this.

Ugh...the idea of tie-dying 600 shirts in one day is making me break out

in cold sweat.
